SEW-EURODRIVE has released an updated schedule for its nationwide motor and drive technology training program, DriveAcademy.
The DriveAcademy program provides end-users and system integrators with a comprehensive set of skills to get the most out of motor and drive technologies and applications. The training is based on the same in-depth technical training syllabus used to educate SEW-EURODRIVE’s own engineers.
According to SEW-EURODRIVE’s National Training Manager, Michael Stranieri, the 2013 schedule includes a number of unique courses to support the diverse products at SEW. All courses are offered for a variety of end-users including drive engineers, service application engineers, operations managers and maintenance technicians, and combine theory with hands-on practical segments to add to the learning experience.
DriveAcademy training courses cover a wide range of topics including maintenance and repair of SEW gearmotors and condition monitoring systems for preventative maintenance. Product specific courses are also offered, providing insight into the implementation of some of SEW-EURODRIVE’s most popular technologies such as courses on the company’s MOVIDRIVE ‘B’ application inverter, MOVI-PLC/motion controller, decentralised drive systems, and the MOVITRAC frequency inverter families.
Mr Stranieri adds that the standard courses are offered in small class sizes to ensure participants receive a high level of personal attention while also equipping them with specific knowledge relating to SEW motor and drive technologies.
The 2013 schedule begins with training on the company’s MOVITRAC B series of frequency inverters in early March.
